The 36th annual Festival of Trees returns to the Tacoma Armory

The Tacoma Armory was filled this weekend with elaborately decorated Christmas trees. It’s the first time the annual Festival of Trees took place in person since 2019.

The Tannenbaums and accompanying items – each with their own theme – are being auctioned off to raise funds for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. KNKX's Special Projects Reporter Mayowa Aina went see the holiday tradition.

Mayowa Aina reports and produces special projects, including podcasts and series, for KNKX. Mayowa started her public radio career at KUOW in Seattle. She's worked at NPR in Washington, D.C. and Alaska Public Media before moving back to her hometown of Tacoma to work at KNKX.
